the issuance of a tax exempt obligation by the abag finance authority for nonprofit corporations in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $32,000,000 to finance and refinance various capital facilities owned by san francisco friends school. >> thank you. for this item we have anthony abizon. >> good morning, members of the budget analyst committee. my name is anthony [speaker not understood] with the controller's office of public finance. the item before you approves the issuance of $32 million to finance and refinance capital improvements at san francisco friends school. there is no fiscal impact to the city and the city is not responsible for repayment. the resolution adopting the resolution would allow the financing to proceed on a tax exempt basis. and in the audience is bond counsel and members, representatives from the school if you have any project specific questions. >> thank you. just a quick question. this item does not have any fiscal impact for the city. so, therefore, there's no budget analyst report for that, there is no general fund impact. but generally thes
-site, are you able to take advantage of tax credits or some other sorces of funding? >> no, it wouldn't align with a kind of 60% ami tax credit and, in fact, the program prevents you from meeting your inclusionary obligation through the taking advantage of other subsidies. so we wouldn't see that alignment. >> so they are generally done not with other subsidies? >> that is my understanding. the 70% threshold is in the code. these are great questions and policy questions to come back and address, but our procedures manual update doesn't contemplate a change to that. >> i wasn't familiar with the offsite ami was encouraged. there is some reason if the ami is lower off-site, that is some rationale to have them offsite? >> i can come back and report on that. i think it's a very fair question. certainly on the face of it it means to get deeper affordable, . >> i'm sorry, deputy city attorney susan cleveland knowles, just to correct one thing mr. adams just said, the current code does not provides that if you are doing a tax-exempt project you are not subject to the inclusionary housing progr
and collection agreement and the tax certificate. because that's integral on the tax exempt borrowing that bawsca will be doing on the proceeds. the use of proceeds is a commitment that we make in the representation of the tax covenant. it says that we will use these for eligible tax proceeds. we have plenty of items that you approved. and they include our capital project expenditures that are appropriated to large part. and includes the repayment of bonds. by using these proceeds to repay bond service it allows low increases for rate payors. this gives a look at what the rate increases would be with and without the prepayment. you see the most dramatic is that absent of prepayment we need 26% one-time rate increase. followed by smaller ones after that. however now we would be able to shave off 14%. a pretty material amount of money as lower rate increases in 14 and 15. the schedule is for your consideration, and then to the board of supervisors in january, and bawsca would be teed up to the bonds in january. >> thank you. commissioner moran. >> i would like to make a comment. this is amazingly g
that that's the case. apartment and rental fees, i think anybody who lives here knows taxes were due december 10 at the latest. we still haven't gotten, we won't know until january what the results of how we're doing in that first payment of the property taxes. the reason i say that is the apartment fees are tied to the roll, they are built along with your property tax so that's when they come in. >> in terms of expenses, as i mentioned, 40 percent of the budget has been expended for personnel and we're at 42 percent of the year so we're just, we're slowly catching up and i expect by the end of the year, as i said, we'll be not completely fully staffed but we're getting there. the other sort of expenses or trends that we're seeing in expenses is they are starting to bill out the work orders but most of the departments don't bill them out until january for the first 6 months of the year so that's where we'll see the large ones, which one largest is the city attorney's office. so we're waiting for that. just kind of a footnote. next meeting we'll be presenting the first iteration of
questions. i do want to under score, this is not an insignificant part of the sales tax program, just the active projects before you on the list, 165 million in sales tax dollars that are leveraging the projects for the total costs with just the active phases of $440 million, with that i will have her come forward. good afternoon. like she said we will be talking about this from the muni, the first three projects, are related to the central controlling communications facility, and this is a series of projects that i designed to upgrade and bring up to the 21st century. and a lot of nerve center systems that are used for running the day-to-day operations. at muni some of the systems are 40 years old and in this day and age, in which technology advances on a daily basis, you can just imagine how out dated the systems are. and the first project in this group is the central control interum facility. and this is going to have a lot of operations that are scattered throughout the city in one location. and the control itself will be there and the dpt, and the traffic and sfo, the security di
right to view not necessarily, but what about right to value? we pay taxes and we pay taxes on property and property is high because you have a view. well, with this thing we will no longer have any views. and the question also is addition to solar panels under the draft motion it says, "the project is desirable as in keeping with the neighborhood character of tall multi-unit buildings." what about the neighborhood character that isn't next door to the building? what about the neighborhood character of people like us on jackson street on which there are multiple buildings that face this view? we're all affected by this one owner, one singular addition for one families. we're not talking about adding more space for families, but a penthouse for some owner who will block the view and dress decrease the value for all of us in the neighborhood. this is part of the character of the city. you can't encroach by building more and more higher and higher buildings. there was supposed to be a pre-application meeting. nothing. i went away for thanksgiving. i came back there was no notice. a neigh
of intentions because at the end of the day we're accountable to the tax payers and the rate payers of city and county of san francisco. >> thank you president torres. just a clarification on the action item before us if there is one or for the later meet something. >> the sfpuc commission agenda provides for them to discuss and take action, so our understanding is that the commission secretary would call the roll for the sfpuc so that ey could vote on this agenda item for lafco it was just a discussion item. >> thank you. commissioner vietor. >> yes and i appreciate all the public comments that have been made and the comments too from this body and all of the work that the puc has done. i have been on the public utilities commission for four years plus and i know this cleanpower sf issue -- i think it's been eight years, nine years in the coming, and when i came on there was really this sort of sense that the puc wasn't stepping up, that the city didn't care that we weren't moving quickly enough and he we are at this opportunity to really move things forward. i think it's really remarka
reforms year ago and conducted many meetings and trying to reform the jeopardia and the biz tax that we reformed just this last november and i remember having conversation with you about that before i joined this board in the small business commission and thank you for putting that idea in my head. i know that you have had tremendous service in sacrament toe and i hope and believe that you will continue to public service in years to come and hope to work pa with you in that capacity and i want to thank you on my behalf. >> thank you very much we are so happen to be here to acknowledge all of the work that you have done and i have to say in our own distribution, fee i don't evenna served [spelling?] served distribution four and you set the bar so high and i can remember now people running into me and calling me fee i don't evenna and so the impression that you have left in the district and service is tremendous and i am to thank you for all of the work that you have done on behalf of san francisco and what supervisor kim mentioned is truly commendable i think a lot of people who make
tax and we got the first transportation plan. the prop k sales tax proved a new 30-year extension, and all of the initial projects and plus, the brt are well under way and have reached significant milestones and this is a kutos to this chair and board in particular in april, saved one of the mark way opened to service, the authority board authorized us to sign the high-speed rail mou which helped to unravel the political juggernaut that was tying up the funding and one of the things that that did was all puns intended was energize the project and now has a real fubding plan and redepress is under way. in may, we got to the first time the transbay terminal projects to the downtown extension part was named of two new priorities for federal new starts funding in the regional transportation plan. in june, in the executive director's plan, they reached financial close which is a testament not only to the work by slogart and weiss not giving up on that and weiner and campos helping to seal the plan. and cal tram and we have done so successfully in june, the boards approved the locally p
the rates to return or some other way return that excess revenue to tax payers or go to voters to ask voters to approve an increase in the limit, but we have not reached that point yet. a couple of other points you might be interested in, we did look back at fiscal year 11-12 with the initial budget we expected to be well over 200 million below the gam limit, but 11-12 was a year of very strong revenue growth above our budget. but still, we still den end the year well within the limit, at least $70 million below the budget in 11-12. also looking forward even with our strong revenues, our preliminary forecast shows that we should still be within the limit and this would be 13-14 by over $100 million, under our current growth assumptions, probably over 150 million. it will be something that as we work with the mayor's office mayor's office from the five-year plan, we will keep monitoring this in the future to make sure we inform you as soon as possible if the city looks like it's bumping up against this state limit. i'm happy to answer the questions. >> there are no questions from the committe

to provide the in-kind service and not to over tax and as a result, we are doing that once a quarter, i think that it is incredibly reasonable to do that. 160 officers will be trained in the patrol force. and we are moving on. the discussions are supporters and moving the cit forward and i leave with you with this. this is not about in and off itself, mental health, this is about all officers engaging with people in our community who are, whose ability with a threat to the public. so in each one of these where the former chiefs have brought this to bear it has been precipitated by a tragic event and quite frankly, our officers we want to stop having to use deadly force. the calls of service will not imulate from the professionals who are dealing with the person who constitutes the threat. it is about dealing with the aggressive behavior of folks that is threatening to the public that we have ko contend with and not necessarily it is an issue, with that said, i thank you for having us, and the chief is moving forward, with the level of community engagement that are going to follow in january,
poor. they pay their taxes. they may run into a rough patch now and then and what we're able to provide is a bridge towards getting them back on their feet. the center averages about 14,000 visits a year in the health clinic alone. one of the areas that we specialize in is family medicine, but the additional focus of that is is to provide care to women and children. women find out they're pregnant, we talk to them about the importance of getting good prenatal care which takes many visits. we initially will see them for their full physical to determine their base line health, and then enroll them in prenatal care which occurs over the next 9 months. group prenatal care is designed to give women the opportunity to bond during their pregnancy with other women that have similar due dates. our doctors here are family doctors. they are able to help these women deliver their babies at the hospital, at general hospital. we also have the wic program, which is a program that provides food vouchers for our families after they have their children, up to age 5 they are able to receive food vouchers
